Moraga Police Blotter

Ongoing investigation 8/11/16
Hot car: the owner of a 2006 Porsche Cayenne reported the car stolen when the owner was out of state. Spicing up the Cayenne's disappearance: the vehicle is reportedly in possession of a Richmond auto body shop employee, who is attempting to register it in his name. The investigation is still cooking...

DUI arrest 8/11/16
The driver of a 2015 Ford pickup picked up an unwanted tail - a Moraga police officer - when the driver suddenly swerved into the officer's traffic lane. Not content with his first close encounter, the driver swerved toward and nearly struck several more vehicles innocently parked along Moraga Road. When finally corralled, the 63-year-old Castro Valley resident reportedly reeked of booze. He was arrested on DUI, taken to Martinez Detention Facility and booked.

Loud Party 8/13/16
How many party-goers does it take to make a party loud? Apparently only six. An anonymous tip told police of said party and Mr. Loud Homeowner was counselled about noise and issued a warning. He signed the notice. Quietly.

Suspicious Circumstances 8/14/16
When a Moraga resident noticed several mailboxes open nearby, he reviewed video recordings and called police about a white car with sunroof and spoiler. Police responded to the Moraga Way location and found miscellaneous mail dumped from Moraga, Dublin and Walnut Creek. Said mail was returned to sender - the U.S. Postal Service.
